8. Alarm notification

Anyone who has an intruder alarm fitted to their property (business or residential) is required by law to nominate a key holder and notify us of their details. 

This will allow us to contact the owners or nominated key holders for the property if an intruder alarm is going off and causing an inconvenience to neighbours.

Under the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005, the whole of Exeter is designated an alarm notification area.

Anyone failing to notify us of an existing or new intruder alarm can be issued with a fixed penalty notice for £75.00.  Failure to pay the fine could result in a maximum fine on conviction of £1,000.

To notify us of your alarm, please complete our alarm notification form.
